It’s the Final Day of National Ag Week!

We’re wrapping up National Ag Week with our final highlight of our Wells Fargo Agriculture Building. People from all over the world visit the Wells Fargo Agriculture Building presented by Save Mart to see all the reasons why Fresno County is the world’s top agricultural area! From apples to garlic, you’ll find more than 350 different varieties of locally-grown crops on display. Be sure to check out this exhibit to see exactly what this Valley is famous for! Did you know the entire Ag building comes together each year thanks to the many volunteers from each of the communities? Interested in volunteering this year? Let us know!


Let’s all do our part to keep social distancing NOW and follow good healthy habits so we can curb this virus and see you all at the 2020 Big Fresno Fair!

National Ag Day – Thank A Farmer

Along with it being the second day of National Ag Week, today is also National Ag Day! Instead of highlighting an Ag fact, we want to put the spotlight on our farmers. Without the hard work of our farmers, the rich Central Valley Ag wouldn’t be what it is today. Take the time today to thank a farmer for all their hard work!
